I worked with Jeff Merrick in the mid-1990s. I had many opportunities to observe his legal abilities and work ethic. And I was impressed! Mr. Merrick consistently won his cases, and was the highest earner for the law firm that employed us.
Then, in 2004 I was involved in a car accident, and had broken bones and spinal injuries. In 2005, someone else crashed into my car, and the ultimate result was I needed three major surgeries, and about 17 minor surgeries.
When my insurance company refused to honor their obligations for uninsured and underinsured car crashes, I knew that Jeff would be the best attorney for my case.
And he was! He worked many hours to understand my medical records and injuries. He very ably defended me against my insurance company's attacks. And because of his superior legal skills, he was able to craft the lawsuit so that my insurance company had to pay his attorney fees, and I was able to keep the entire jury award.
And the judge told the insurance company attorney that he would have awarded me even more money based on Mr. Merrick's case presentation.
I think Jeffrey Merrick did an excellent job fighting for my rights, and would hire him again in an instant.

Mr. Merrick repesented me in a discrimination case against a former employer. I always knew Jeff truly cared for me and my case. Mr. Merrick always returned any phone calls or emails right away. I knew that he was fighting for me. I could not of asked for a better attorney. Jeff made a really tough time so much easier.
